HELLO LONG PIECE | A great kick start to NaNoWriMo with my next long piece due for class. I’m trying to be less timid with my main character. How far to go and still keep the trust of the reader?
HELLO SAMHAIN | You may celebrate Hallowe’en but my preference is Samhain, the ancient harvest festival to celebrate the division of the year between the lighter half (summer) and the darker half (winter). At Samhain the division between this world and the otherworld is at its thinnest, allowing spirits to pass through. (It’s also time for my annual viewing of Practical Magic. So good!)
HELLO TEMPLE GRANDIN | I’ve been looking forward to this particular talk since I purchased tickets to the “In Conversation With” series at the Oakville Centre. I so enjoy learning new things by people intimate with adversity.
HELLO WRITING RETREAT | Getting away from all responsibilities and household distraction is exactly what I need to re-plot my novel. Thinking I need to make a visual map rather than a simple list. It’s a process!
HELLO PHOTO PROJECT | All of the notecards are printed and I’m busily packaging them. I look forward to how this unfolds. I’m starting small: only ten of my most favourite emotion evoking images. The big stuff is the website and all social media! Lots of work to get this “little project” launched.
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day of the week. I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
